What is Dvorak All About?
Switching to the Dvorak layout is painless and easy.
1st-Configuring you keyboard is easy. You don't need to go out and buy any expensive keyboards or software. Your computer probably already has everything necessary to switch over. Click here to find out just how easy it is to reconfigure your keyboard. Come on; Click there-- I dare you!
2nd- Learning to type with the Dvorak Layout is also easy. According to Jared Diamond, it takes a beginning QWERTY typist 56 hours of typing to reach 40 wpm (which is a respectable typing speed).... but it only takes 18 hours for a beginning Dvorak typist to reach 40 wpm. That�s less than half the time! If you practice typing 35 minutes each day, it should only take you 1 month to switch over to Dvorak... and believe me, it will be one of the best investments of your time. It took me 20 hours, to switch over from Qwerty to Dvorak, and I have been very happy with the switch. Not only am I typing faster, and more accurately-- I am also saving lots of wear and tear on my fingers. (Your fingers have to move 20 times farther on a QWERTY keyboard than a Dvorak keyboard because Mr. Sholes decided he would hide all the common keys on a QWERTY keyboard.)
